Tillett. Click here for Moonbeam's Month in Brief.
Mon Oct 1: Resolution
Resolution of a troubling matter can come into your life now; the stress of yesterday gives way to greater peace and understanding. The worst is over... you can continue making progress if you work hard to communicate clearly and directly. Let love and forgiveness begin the healing process. Benefical colors are burnt orange and hazel. Lucky numbers are 27 and 28.
Tue Oct 2: Tense Times
The Moon enters Taurus and your tenth house of career and reputation today, starting the day off on a tense note. It seems everyone wants something and they want it yesterday... don't crack under the pressure. Hold your head up high. There is much to do, but you are up to the challenge! Advantageous colors are coal black and garnet red. Lucky numbers are 8 and 10.
Wed Oct 3: Wealth and Status
Find a way to balance your public and your private lives today without wearing yourself out. By this evening, you should be ready for some fun, so surround yourself with your favourite people. Personal finances, friendships, and your values are stressed this month. Luxury items do appeal! You'll be keen to spend on your appearance, thanks to Venus. Is social status connected with wealth in
your world? Auspicious colors are emerald green and steel gray. Lucky numbers are 17 and 26.
Thu Oct 4: Sociable Lions
The Moon enters Gemini and your eleventh house of friends and associates, making you feel more sociable today. It may be hard to get much work done as people will feel like chatting; you can still be productive in-between the chitchat. You may find that your most significant other is feeling rather frisky, so why not meet for lunch? Fortunate colors are electric blue and flame orange. Lucky
numbers are 11 and 22.
Fri Oct 5: Flirtatious
You may feel like flirting outrageously, but don't go overboard this evening. Intense, passionate types are likely to get your attention and light flirting could be taken more seriously than you intend. Children may also be extra sensitive to your attempts at playfulness and humor... don't be surprised if your well intentioned comments trigger an emotional outburst. Family responsibilities
increase. Should you be disappointed with your home or domestic arrangement you are likely to change it in months ahead. Favorable colours are celery green and charcoal grey. Lucky numbers are 4 and 5.
Sat Oct 6: Conserve Energy
Although a light and friendly mood lifts your spirit for most of the day, the Moon will enter Cancer and your twelfth house of secrets and solitude tonight. You'll need to slow down and pace yourself carefully over the next two days, conserving your energy. Turn in early so you will be sure to get enough sleep. Favorable colors are lavender and midnight blue. Lucky numbers are 12 and 30.
Sun Oct 7: Strange Dreams
You probably won't be up for much today. Some of you may be pondering strange dreams you had last night; you might want someone else's input on the possible meanings. Those of you who plan to go out this evening may not have such a wonderful time; your energy is low now that you are in your lunar low cycle. Take time out for your own thoughts. Your lovelife will soon pick up, as Mars enters
adventurous Sagittarius today. Benefical colors are salmon pink and aqua. Lucky numbers are 3 and 39.
Mon Oct 8: Slow Motion
Many of you will want to sleep late this morning, but few of you have the luxury to do so. Don't worry, you can get through the day in slow motion... no one else is likely to notice if you are only half- awake. You may have to pretend to be busy if your boss or authority figures walk by, so try to be aware of their comings and goings. Auspicious colors are sunset pink and lilac. Lucky numbers
are 21 and 30.
Tue Oct 9: Stellar Energy
It should be easy for you to shine as the Moon makes her way through your sign today, just as the regal Sun makes a beautiful aspect with mighty Jupiter. You can make a stellar impression, as you are gifted with even more charm and magnetism than usual. You may find that increasing pressure in your career and in your closest relationships will keep you on your toes for the next two days or
so. Favorable colors are bright gold and pale lilac. Lucky numbers are 1 and 3.
Wed Oct 10: Charismatic
The Moon moves through Leo and your first house of personality, helping you to zip through the day. You'll be especially magnetic and charismatic, so take advantage of the positive energy.

Lucky numbers are 19 and
Thu Oct 11: Down To Business

Lucky numbers are 2 and 20.
Fri Oct 12: Pace Yourself
You may feel as though life is all work and no play as the Moon insists you put business before pleasure. You may be right, but everything comes and goes in seasons. Today may be very hectic and busy for you, so take a few deep breaths and pace yourself. By this evening, you should be feeling much better. Go for a brisk walk to help you release stress. Favorable colors are copper and fern
green. Lucky numbers are 29 and 38.
Sat Oct 13: Community Spirit
There is plenty to do in your community today, and you'll find you're out and about more than usual. There may be some misunderstandings at home, but don't allow emotional upsets overwhelm you. If you've had a fight, wait at least thirty minutes before getting behind the wheel of a car. Favorable colors are butterscotch and baby blue. Lucky numbers are 16 and 23.
Sun Oct 14: Passionate Cats
With the Moon aspecting Mars, you should feel a burst of energy today. Some may explode in a fit of temper, but most of you should simply be feeling a zest for life.

Advantageous colors are pale gold and royal purple. Lucky
numbers are 1 and 5.
Mon Oct 15: New Moon
You might feel rather talkative today as the New Moon activates your third house of communications. It's time to catch up on all your correspondence, including phone calls and e-mail.

Tue Oct 16: Home And Family
The changing Moon enters your fourth house of home and family, urging you to spend some time with your clan.

fruits of your labor! Auspicious colors are dove gray and sea green. Lucky numbers are 22 and 24.
Wed Oct 17: Count To Ten
Take a few deep breaths and count to ten as many times as you need to today. Yesterday's problems should be improving, but you may be a bit frazzled from all the stress.

Fortunate colors are white and silver. Lucky numbers are
2 and 11.
Thu Oct 18: Pleasure Seeker
The Moon enters Sagittarius and your fifth house of romance and creativity today, setting off a pleasure binge.

Lucky numbers are 15 and 20.
Fri Oct 19: Feel Good
You should feel quite good today as the Moon completes her journey through Sagittarius; many of you will be in the mood for weekend festivities.

numbers are 12 and 15.

Favorable colors are navy blue and tan. Lucky numbers
are 5 and 17.
Sun Oct 21: Chill Out
You may be under a great deal of stress, dear Leo. It seems as though you simply can't please anyone, so stop trying to please everyone.

Tue Oct 23: Private Life
As the glorious Sun rolls into Subtle Scorpio, your attention turns to private life, domestic chores and matters related to home or property. Your role and influence in the family is enhanced. Set aside some time today to do absolutely nothing. Yes, you read that right; everyone knows from time to time, the King (and Queen) of the Jungle must stop all activity and simply lounge.

a hammock or swing and just be. Let the family in (with drinks and cakes of course!). Fortunate colors are cobalt blue and white. Lucky numbers are 4 and 22.
Wed Oct 24: Moment By Moment
Whatever disasters befell you yesterday will begin to work themselves out today.

orange and butter yellow. Lucky numbers are 9 and 43.

Lucky numbers are 9 and 18.
Fri Oct 26: Prowling Pussycats

numbers are 35 and 44.

Sun Oct 28: Sweet Words

are golden amber and mink brown. Lucky numbers are 16 and 21.

earth brown and garnet red. Lucky numbers are 8 and 10.

relationships. Hang in there! Auspicious colors are emerald green and sapphire blue. Lucky numbers are 19 and 28.
